Choosing to bat first after winning the toss will be a great decision as teams batting first have won more games than batting second.

WIvsIND | Head to Head

West Indies got the upper hand in numbers against India 30-23. Although the overall record favors West Indies, it is important to know that the Caribbean side has not won a single Test against India since May 2002.

  • Matches Played – 99
  • Won by West Indies – 30
  • Won by India – 23
